There’s a big shake-up planned for the road tax system from April 2017, which will affect all vehicles except those with zero emissions.
Cars registered before April 1st 2017 will continue to be taxed under the old system. After that a flat fee of £140 applies for all vehicles not categorised as zero emissions (after 1st year).
The tables below show how the changes will effect your budget.
|For vehicles registered up to 31/03/17|
|Emissions g/km of CO2||1st year rate||Annual rate (after 1st year)|
|Up to 100 g/km||£0||£0|
|Over 255 g/km||£1,120||£515|
|For vehicles registered from 01/04/17|
|Cars above £40,000 pay £310 annual supplement for five years|
|Emissions g/km of CO2 ||1st year rate||Standard rate (after 1st year rate)|
|Over 255 g/km||£2,000||£140|
